, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for the president. >> has worked incredibly closely with me. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> the governor has said he has no intention of bringing romney to new jersey to survey the storm's damage. christie aides are denying any sort of rift with the romney campaign saying it is just about dealing with the storm and not about presidential politics. but one of the main political speculations here is that christie thinks romney has no chance of winning and he is setting himself up for a run in 2016. >>> romney has a good cause to be worried if the polls have anything to say about it. president obama is ahead six points in iowa. that's coming from the nbc news "wall street journal" morris poll. the president's also up by three in wisconsin and two in new hampshire. two
nevada which is leaning towards obama and wisconsin is still leaning towards obama. ohio, is my view, is in dispense able. >> where did you read that nevada is leaning towards obama. >> i haven't seen a pollare romney leading first. it's one-third hispic, and this heavily unionized. >> i have people there and they don't think that at all. >> that's the wrong neighborhood. >> here'she point i want to make. the polls today reare regarded t microscopically perfect, you and i know, say ten years o when you were still doing this ow because of your tenacity, and because ofowmy leniency. >> 0 years ago. >> 20 years ago, 30, polls ofwee regarded as a rock makes, these polls today have -- as approximation, these pos today are -- >> there is money to be made. >> one or two -- [ talking over one another ] >> i hate to see this come to an end. >> polls are not that precise. >> if they weren't that precis, why do politicians spend that much money on them? >> they are false idols. they are worshiping the false idol. >> the media are more obsessed with polling than before. they show a close race,
that. he's competitive in ohio. this is a dead heat. statistically a dead heat between romney and obama. very puzzling to hear how this is going over here. >> and just to add to that, the swing voters we're talking to here, there is a sense that this issue resonated. the front pages, the local newspaper here is about romney on the auto industry. >> people are mad. >> and it is registering as an unforced error. people take it very personally here, their jobs, their local economy is connected to the auto bailout and stimulus package according to the mayor here. >> yeah. and, john, listen, the president has a tough sell. it may be an easier sell for mitt romney and the reason i say that is because when everyone is running for president, they can say i'm going to do this. you heard mayor romney saying i'm going to open up the keystone pipeline, this and this and this and this. it is tougher for the president to say i'm going to do more of what we have been doing so the economy at least grows a little bit. so do you think, john, or -- either one of you guys, do you think voters get that part
president obama. 46% of ohio's likely voters support mitt romney. it is that close. and, of course, in ohio, every single vote is valuable. ballots are guarded and tracked with ferocious precision. but i got a behind the scenes up close look in one county to see how the ballots are actually counted. here it is. in person -- >> name, two forms of i.d., signature, looks good. >> reporter: or by mail, all ballots in hamilton county, ohio, end up here, election headquarters. >> so this is when the absentee ballots come back from the post office. we have the clerks who scan them back in and check them for making sure they're valid. >> reporter: processed by an army of staff, volunteers, and machines. norman jr.'s turn now. a brand-new machine named after the character in the movie psycho, because of this noise. norman scans, photographs, and separates ballots into precincts. >> we start with mail buckets and just toss them all in. >> reporter: are you happy to have this machine? >> with this many ballots, yes. >> reporter: now downstairs to the inspectors. this is it? >> this is it. this is wher
president obama looking to close the deal in the crucial battle ground state of ohio. this is from mentor, ohio where the president is just about to speak. we're watching that very closely. before heading to today's event, though, the president visited fema headquarters to get a response to the efforts of aftermath of hurricane sandy. he is sending -- >> we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. and we want to make sure that we are figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no when it comes to these problems. >> meanwhile, mitt romney also has his sights on several key swing states today, starting with new hampshire. >> you saw the differences between barack obama and me in those debates. i like those debates. i got to be honest. i mean, he says it has to be this way. i say it can't stay this way. he's offering excuses. i'm offering a plan. i can't wait to get started. >> mitt romney will also visit iowa and colorado today, running mate paul ryan already wrapped up an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we
's race in ohio and mitt romney and barack obama are the candidates. maybe your mike is working. >> you're right, early voting is key. and part of that strategy is focus on two groups. what i call soft supporters, those are folks who voted for president obama in 2008, they have not seen the progress that they would have hoped to have seen, but they still support him, but they're not necessarily going to be compelled to vote early. so to push those people to the poll. the second group is newly registered voters in those key counties because they may be turned off on election day if the lines are too long, if they deal with some of the obstruction nico obstructionism that we can expect. >> as i was looking at those 106 counties, we think of them as like swing voters, but it's not really that. people have their minds made up. it's just which one of he is them that live in that county show up. is it about getting them to the polls some. >> i think so. and when we reference to these candidates, we're hearing pretty different arguments and that's because barack obama is deep into his closing
the latest polls show that the race in battle ground states like ohio have president obama leading mitt romney by five points when counting both early voters and ohioans who will actually vote on election day. but the overall race is a dead heat among ohioans who are going to cast their ballot on november 6. so how does president obama or mitt romney break the stalemate among the voters? they can basically either woo the undecideds or fire up the base. for president obama, it has become increasingly clear that the strategy is about one word, early. >> we can vote early in illinois, we can vote early in illinois. just like you can vote right now in florida. p just like you can vote early in colorado. just like you can vote early here in nevada. you can vote early. anybody who is here who has not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vote. vote. vote. >> so did you get the message obama supporters some vote, vote, vote, early, early, early. it is a message directed specifically at the base. and to drive the point home about early voting, president obama went home to cast his vote this p
're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a mess because of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout b. what role government direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would
, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney. listen. >> at the time the republican congress, senate candidate by the name of mitt romney -- no -- voting is the best revenge. >> reporter: voting is best revenge. his campaign was asked about that. they said what he was talking about is the best way to battle back against the illusion and delusion that mitt romney is putting out there but he did give romney a gift to put an ad. what is the president really talking about here? what does he want people to vote for? giving romney to contrast himself with the president. listen. >> yesterday the president said something you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience, he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i would like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> we talk a lot about early voting here on the campaign trail and this election, it's particularly important in colorado where 50% of people have already cast their ballots. here is the way it's broken down.
more frayed. >>> four days to go, president obama arrives in ohio overnight and governor romney heads there as well as both camps brace for this morning's all-important jobs report and the impact of sandy looms large over election day. >>> and walk this way. new yorkers in need of a lift are about to get one on our plaza. the countdown has begun for aerosmith's first ever morning show concert today, friday, november 2nd, 2012. >>> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. this has been a hard week around here, but it's nice to have something to smile about this morning. aerosmith here on the plaza. >> a confession, i walked outside a second ago as they were rehearsing to see steve tyler behind a microphotograph and joe perry walking up and down the stage. this is just a destruction. the death toll from sandy has risen to more than 90 people. there's a lot of talk about the situation in new yor
that president obama is scheduled to speak in ohio in 15 minutes, and we will take you back there live. we will also take you to mitt romney's event in wisconsin set to begin in 40 minutes. >>> a problem following superstorm sandy is getting worse. we are talking about the search for gas. people are lining up for a miler omore at the few gas stations are open. many gas stations don't have power for the pumps or they are s simply out of gas. >> i was online and i see three gas stations that closed down while i was there. >> this is your fourth try? >> yes. we come from jersey, and this is probably three hours to get into the city, and there is no gas there. and just to say it is a shame what is happening. >> a shame. >> no one knew. >> that is just gas for cars. a lot of people need gas to run the generators because as you well know power is still out at so many homes. u.s. death toll from sandy has risen to 92. four of those in new york city alone and half of the deaths are coming from staten island which is one of the hardest hit areas. most people without power and most say they have not
keilar who is in near columbus, ohio n franklin county. tell us more about president obama's final message to the voters. >> well, carol a lot of the message is going to be about patience, and things are getting under way here in hilliard and i have to tell you that governor strickland was just introduced. we know that president obama is on the way here, and we are expecting that is a message of patience that he will be urging. probably using the jobs numbers from today to say, look, the economy is slowly but surely moving in the right direction, and this isn't the time to change course. obviously, countering very much to what we have heard from governor romney as he tries to urge the voters to change course. if yesterday was any indication, expect some strong jigs at governor romney for positioning himself as the candidate of change in this election. we heard yesterday that president talk about how mitt romney is not the candidate of change, but he has not put specifics on to a number of his economic plans. and we are expecting him to hit governor romney in the same way today, car
that barack obama's plan to help the auto industry has paid off in jobs in ohio. believe me, i come from the industrial midwest. people remember who helped them save their jobs. now, look, there's something else we're not mentioning here that plays directly into the ohio race, and that's the senate race going on there. brown who is a wonderful senator and fantastic candidate who took votes all along the eastern border of ohio, well better than most democrats do, he's ahead. he's going to beat josh mendel in that senate race. i think you'll see reverse coattails and sherrod brown, who is a fantastic senate candidate, win. and that's going to help barack obama. people will see both names on the ballot rather, and they're going to strovote for both of t. it will help get president obama over the finish line in ohio. >> we'll be watching. thank you, gentlemen. >>> new details surrounding hurricane sandy. we heard that the holland tunnel and brooklyn battery tunnel will close in manhattan at 2:00 this afternoon. parts of lower manhattan are already taking on a little water. anne thompson is a
hearing from the obama campaign about how they feel about ohio? >> reporter: well, you constantly hear about the poll numbers, the early vote. there are so many numbers being thrown out by this campaign, sometimes you feel like you're at the betting track. but the bottom line is, it's a confidence game by both sides and they do point out that yes, the president is consistently up even if it's within the margin of error, consistently up in every ohio poll you look at. and that they have the advantage with the ground game. and also, as we pointed out before with the auto bailout. that was a theme the president hit today in pretty stark terms. he really went after governor romney for that ad you and i have spoken about in the past where governor romney says that chrysler is going to make jeeps in china, and the president says that the ceos of these companies have asked governor romney to stop making the ad and that governor romney is trying to scare people. the president's top two advisors came to talk to the press and said this is back-firing on governor romney and people here don't like
, as you know that. president obama, mitt romney both spent the day in the state of ohio. romney gave a speech in wisconsin this morning before heading there, the president had rallies in three different cities in ohio. latest cnn/orc poll shows the president leading romney by just three points in ohio, razor-thin lead within the poll's margin of error. >> our national political correspondent jim acosta and white house correspondent jessica yellin. the candidates' messages are very different but their itinerary couldn't be more similar, could it? >> that's right. they are basically battling for the same swing states over the next three days, three final days of this campaign. mitt romney is in ohio right now, he goes to new hampshire tomorrow morning, then heads to iowa, colorado and later this weekend, heading into monday, he goes to virginia and florida. you know, anderson, you can lay the battleground map for president obama and mitt romney almost on top of one another, because their schedules are so similar. >> jessica, all year long, people have been pointing to this final jobs r
there in ohio, virtual dead heat. across the nation, much of the nation as well, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, and a national public radio poll 57% of those surveyed said economic issues are the most likely to affect their vote. cnn's brienne into keilar is live in grove city, ohio, this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you, cole dad. we do know that president obama will be addressing those jobs numbers when he speaks here. actually i should say, we are in hilliard, ohio, very close to grove city, just outside of columbus. so we know that he'll be addressing those jobs numbers. the big complication for him would be if the numbers were worse than expected. especially if they tick up to 8%, because that was an important sort of mental hurdle that the country cleared last month. and then for mitt romney, obviously, the complication would be if they're bette
the presidency without winning. ohio will be the decisive state. if president obama wins florida, it moves the -- >> i could see florida being -- >> what i heard democrats talk about if they can hold ohio, hold wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, hold nevada, they could lose all other swing states, lose the congressional district in maine and come out with exactly 270 electoral votes. gwen: you add it up that way, john? >> that sounds very powerful. what i am struck by is there hasn't been any mystery about this. if you go further than a year ago, president obama's team was very straightforward. they expected it was going to be mitt romney. they were going to make him very unacceptable. the wealthy and out of touch background. they did that. they had a micro targeted micromessage strategy. they said what they were going to do. and stuck to that strategy seems to be with remarkable discipline. if it works, they look really, really smart. the difference between being really smart and really dumb -- [laughter] >> what's remarkable is that they broadcast that, right? >> and the romney campaign
, president obama has a bit of an edge in most of the polls here in ohio, but it's still statistically relevant. two things have to happen. one, they have to get out the vote. both these organizations have to get out the vote. there is that small group of voters that can still be convinced. today will be influential in convincing them, soledad, about which of these presidential candidates have a better vision and better ability to guide the future, all for president obama. is this working or is it not? >> interesting. let's get right to candy crowley. i think ali said something that was very interesting. you have this among republican governors where the states have done okay, have done well-ish in the slow recovery and so who gets the credit? in a way they're in a position where they can't say states are doing terribly because it doesn't help them in the narrative. and they can't say the states are doing great because it doesn't helm them in their narrative. >> it's been tough. all three run by republican governors. it's been tough but what they've done, for instance, when you look at
's move over to ohio. this is a place where the obama campaign worked very hard on early voting in the african-american communities, especially in the cleveland area. you see cleveland, the cleveland suburbs, and to a lesser degree down here to the south in the akron area, people without power. how did they vote in 2008 and how do they tend to vote in presidential policies? across the top of the state, heavy democratic areas. our producer called out to cuyahoga today. early voting down today than it was four years ago. so you see some obvious immediate impacts. the question is, again, with a few more days to go, five more d days, can they get this fixed come election day? in the northern virginia suburbs, it tells the story. a lot of people out in the northern washington, d.c. area, fairfax county, arlington. you go back four years, you see all that blue. this is the area most critical to president obama. he has to win the state of virginia. again, when you call to these communities, they think they'll get it fixed in time for tuesday. >> john, when you talked to the two campaig
. obama for president. steve brown live from columbus, ohio with the story on why. steve. >> yeah, megyn the united mine workers of america decided to sit this one out, if you will. the two things you need to know about eastern iowa, southeastern iowa is this. one, that it's among the swingeist areas of the state that they split tickets a lot out there and it's up for grabs. two, coal is huge and provides some of the best paying blue collar jobs. it is not unusual for someone working in mining out there to work 60, 70 hours a week with really terrific benefits. and given the overall economic picture out there it provides some of the best employment opportunities outside of retail. >> it's the only job around here. i mean if you're not in the medical field, coal minor, steel millions are shut down. they sent those to china you've got school teach, medical, coal mining: toxins coming out of smokes tax have put a crimp in coal fire electric generating plants. a dozen of those have shut down in the state of ohio. as a consequence so say coal mining operators seven mines in the state have be
about ohio and early voting and absentee ballots that were requested. he says back in 2008 barack obama his margin of victory -- start with me on the bottom of this graphic you're seeing. obama's margin of victory in 2008 it was 260,000 votes. i'm rounding. he says already in ohio we've seen a swing towards the republican that has wiped out almost all of obama's margin of victory in the early voting or the number of absentee ballots cast for requested. he says, look the democrats 531,000 votes have already been cast or absentee ballots requested or cast. he says that is down 181,000 from four years ago. republicans, 448,000. they are not doing as well as the democrats, but they are doing better than four years ago. the democrats are doing worse enough in ohio and the republicans are doing better enough in ohio that the republicans have wiped out the margin of victory president obama had there four years ago. your thoughts on that? >> my thought on that is it's going to be a late night on tuesday. ohio is going down to the wire just like the rest of the country. on the decision desk we w
it in ohio. >> reporter: yeah, and the obama campaign and other democrats are pointing to comments romney made way back in june of 2011 at a cnn republican presidential debate. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case-by-case basis and some people say the state should take on a bigger role. how do you deal with that? >> every time you take something from the federal government you need to send it back to the states. that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questions. the campaign says it would be better for the state to be in charge of disaster relief. >> paul steinh
of ohio. unemployment rate is 7 percent and better than the national average. they believe in the obama camp it would be a midwestern fire for them and they will carry it and make it hard for obama to reach the electorial votes he needs to take it away from the president. >> neil: we look at the president's travel plans. i am confused of the polls. we know from karl rove. 181,000 viewer democrats turned out for early voting or to file absentee ballots. i don't know if that means anything in and of itself. but it is a gap from last time. are they talking about that or what do they think? they are. and this is why it is significant. early voting is aco part of the obama strategy to get reelected. democrats are more likely to do early vote republicans turn out on election day and not engage in early voting. the president needs a boost in ohio, florida and seeing big crowds and like in nevada out west as well the other thing to note, the president's travels were significant . they have thought if they look at polls suggesting that the president has a big lead in ohio. why is he coming here
mitt romney will win in a land slide. they tend to be in places for mccain and not for obama. it is hard for me to know what is going on. >> you and me both. one thing that was interesting when i listened to the president talking about early voting trend and talk up in ohio and the democratic camp is saying just to compensate for the early voting disadvantage mitt romney is out in ohio. i don't know how that extrap polate this out. he would have to get 59 percent to win the state on election day. how do you see ohio? >> i was in hamilton county, cincinnati and delaware county on monday. everywhere i went. it was enthusiasm for romney . feeling that hamilton county, cincinnati, won 28,000 votes for obama and 12 to 20,000 votes for mitt romney and if that happens you talk about a land slide. it is almost impossible for obama to suffer a 50,000 vote turn around in hamilton county and winco - win ohio. >> neil: you warned about the coming deadline yet it is getting close. as a former speaker and you know how the washington process workings. what do they do whether bark obama or m
